NORMAN, OKLA. – The University of Oklahoma College of Law has been ranked fifth in the nation out of more than 200 law schools as a “Best Value” law school, according to National Jurist magazine. OU Law is the only Oklahoma law school in the top 10.
“This achievement is a testament to both the individual work put forth by our exceptional faculty, staff and students and the collective effort to pursue our mission of providing a dynamic intellectual community,” said OU Law Interim Dean Katheleen Guzman. “Together with other recent accolades, this newest honor demonstrates OU Law’s steadfast commitment to providing a world-class legal education at an affordable and accessible price.”
In its methodology for the Best Value rankings, National Jurist based its findings on several factors, including percentage of graduates who pass the bar exam, employment rate, tuition, cost of living and average indebtedness upon graduation.
The Top 5 Best Value ranking is the latest in a series of recent major honors for OU Law, which include:
- No. 31 out of Top 50 law school rankings, Above the Law
- 94% bar exam passage rate for first-time exam takers – the highest in the state
- No. 16 in the nation for employment, American Bar Association
